Currently Reading: Thornyhold

We have finally moved, and the first book I found at our sweet little library, happily within walking distance of our new home, is Thornyhold, by Mary Stewart. I love her books! Her stories carry me away, and there are always pieces that I want to remember, like this passage:

“I didn’t think such things ever really happened. The ‘happy ever after’ things, I mean.
“They don’t,” she said gently, “Not for ever. Happiness changes as you change. It’s in yourself…”

    SO good to see you!! I’ve not read Mary Stewart, though I seem to remember a book cover with an English cottage on the cover, and a garden of course. Know what it is? Rose Cottage?? I’d like to know more about her. I love the notion of you walking into your new library and borrowing a book.

    All I’ve read of Mary Stewart is her three Merlin books. I really ought to read some of her stand alone books such as this one and Touch Not the Cat as I gather they’re very good.

    Your library sounds lovely, I hope you’ll be very happy in your new home.

    Thank you, Nan and Cath. I’m still slowly getting back to reading and blogging, and it’s nice to have a little more time now that we are getting settled in our new home. I’ve always wanted to live within walking distance of a library! Nan, yes, she did write Rose Cottage, although I haven’t read that one…yet. Cath, I loved her Merlin books, and need to reread them again, but I really enjoy her other fiction, too.
